General Objective:

To create an international network which integrates the already existent ones into the national field of participating countries so as to favor the detection of clinical isolates of multi-drug resistant M. tuberculosis.

This network will allow better illness control, will contribute to reduction of incidence, and will facilitate the search for new medicine targets and new vaccine candidates – more efficient than the actual BCG vaccine.
